Wonderful rental home in a breathtaking piece of the country

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this Buena Vista rental gem. The photos of this property don't do it justice - it's larger and nicer than photos can portray. We were two couples meeting up from Texas and Denver and found the directions helpful and easy to understand coming from different directions. What impressed us most was the property owner's willingness to assist and flexibility! Easily the most pleasant Home Away experience we've ever had, which includes traveling across the U.S. and abroad. The grounds were spectacular in their own right, but we loved the proximity to town, nearby lakes, hikes and the awesome hot springs right down the road. We did a little bit of everything and then relaxed each night at the house, enjoying the scenery and playing games in the game room. We opted to clean the property ourselves for the cost savings and feel it was a very agreeable exchange - about an hour worth of cleaning with four pairs of hands in exchange for a sizable savings. We would do it again in a heartbeat. If we find ourselves visiting this part of the country again, we would absolutely rent again. Thank you so much for the hospitality!

BV Country Home

  • 5 of 5

Located a long mile or so West of Buena Vista town center, this Cottonwood Creek country home turned out being a wonderful getaway for our Thanksgiving vacation. Thanks should also go to Anthony and Michelle for keeping one of the nicest properties we’ve ever stayed at VRBO in excellent condition for their respectful guests. The house is new and kept pristine and clean boasting a beautiful view of the Collegiate Peaks. If you ever come to Colorado for a taste of mountain life, BV is an excellent choice of destination. It is conviently located to anything you might want to do in the Rocky outdoors. And if you happen to get socked in with bad weather, there couldn’t be a nicer place to pass the time than in the game room.

Your hosts at this property, have done a far better job of stocking the home with clean towels and linen and other incidentals than other rental properties making this rental, feel like your own home.

Communication with the owners was personal and welcoming makin our short vacation, worth the time and expense. This is a Grade A property that my family would certainly consider coming back to again to spend more time.

Peaceful Getaway with a View

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Anthony & Michelle's property! It was just out of the way enough for us and yet close to town. The views of the mountains are spectacular and were better than anticipated and the streams down the trail out back were peaceful and secluded. Just what we needed. We also thoroughly enjoyed the home. It was tidy and very clean. Also, the playroom in the garage was ideal for our little one and added a fun element to the home. We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely stay again in the future. Also, Anthony & Michelle were very prompt in answering any questions or concerns and were great hosts. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Beautiful + Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The perfect, quiet get-away for our anniversary! Would love to return again! Waking up to views of Mt Princeton and being able to hear the rushing Creek from the bedroom was wonderful!

Great location, great home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house and a fantastic location! Just a few miles to town yet feels very private and has a creek in the backyard. Just two of us this trip but would work out well for a group. Comfy beds which is important after a day spent outside enjoying all that the area has to offer. Well stocked pantry and paper products. We had a few questions throughout the week and Anthony and Michelle always responded promptly. We took our own sheets and opted to clean to save the cleaning fee. Would definitely stay here again!

Awesome home

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 6 and all of us were very comfortable. This is a nice spacious place. Loved, loved the creek area. Everything that we needed was available. One note is that the grill is charcoal, so make sure you bring some. Game room is super fun for everyone. ( the guys were eyeing the kayaks) Too bad we couldn't have a fire, it was a bit brisk in the evenings. We are planning on coming back next year. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home. I'd recommend this place for sure.

Buena Vista, Spanish for “good view,” is nestled at the foot of the Continental Divide. It is the sort of community most people only dream of.

The hardworking, quiet people who have always resided in this area are a large part of what has made this town a great place to live and play, from rafting and fishing to hiking, biking and much more.

The Comanche Drive-In Movie Theater is open during the summer months and is located approximately three miles west of the Buena Vista traffic light on Chaffee County Road 306. It's right across the street from our home.

The Chaffee County Regional Airport is located southwest of town. (Note that if you're hiking in the nearby Sawatch Mountains, which are convenient to Buena Vista, there are many viewpoints from which you can watch planes on the approach to this airport below you.)

Buena Vista is located approximately 94 miles west of Colorado Springs and is reached from there via west on Hwy. 24 to Hwy 285 and then north for approximately two miles. It's just a two-hour drive from western metro Denver via US 285.

Hike, bike, fish, raft, kayak. Base camp and provisioning stop for through-hikers on the Continental Divide Trail and Colorado Trail. Also attracts off-road enthusiasts in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter exploring old mining ghost towns and trails west of town and the Fourmile Recreation Area east of town.

Enjoy soaking in geothermal hot springs at kid-friendly Mount Princeton Resort. Cottowood Hot Springs is just 1/2 mile from our home.

Alpine skiing: perhaps surprisingly, there are no major ski areas in the Sawatch Range itself. The nearest resort is Monarch Mountain [10] southwest of town near Salida and Poncha Springs. It's one of Colorado's more 'family'-oriented ski areas, with a number of fairly easy slopes and maybe not as many double-diamond adventures as at some other sites. Bigger destination resorts such as Copper Mountain is an hour north via US 24 over well-maintained Fremont Pass and and Vail is just a tad further west on I-70. Breckenridge is 1-1/2 hours away via US 285 to Fairplay then head north over Hoosier Pass. Backcountry ski touring and snowshoeing is also popular.

Colorado Kayak Supply, one of the country's top-selling paddlesports shops is on Main Street. The Trailhead has all kinds of land lubber outdoor equipment gear rentals and sales plus outdoor clothing, maps, basically anything you forgot to pack for your trip. Both shops have knowledgeable sales staff who live, eat and breathe a steady diet of outdoor adventure and are happy to share tips and advice.
